Turning Blanks

Ken Oakley-Sunny St. Cloud, Fla.
>I have been cutting citrus woods such as Orange, Grapefruit and Tangerine into 13/16" sq. by 6" blanks and selling them on Ebay. Been doing pretty good with it. My problem is sometimes I have pieces shorter then 6" that I don't list because most pen blanks I see on Ebay are at least 5 3/4" long. Are there items that can be turned from these shorter pieces? How about pieces that are larger then 13/16" sq. but shorter then 5 3/4"? I hate to keep giving these shorter pieces to my neighbor for his smoker if I could make blanks that I could sell on Ebay and make some more money. I see a lot of discussions about finials. How about Tops? Need suggestions. Thanks
